I strive to ensure your ceremony is meaningful, personal and full of all the good things. I am genuinely excited to be part of your special day, and that is why it is so important to me to make sure your ceremony is heartfelt and engaging, that it reflects your personality, your sense of humour and your love for one another. Each ceremony is written from scratch - that’s how they are guaranteed to reflect who you are and your story!
I became a celebrant in 2017 & have worked in the events industry for over a decade. Over this time, I have learnt a trick or two for ensuring your ceremony runs smoothly and is personal with just the right amount of tears and laughter (no snoozing Susan’s in the back row)! I can also share where the best seat is for mum to sit - so she can see your gorgeous face (and not just the back of your head), when to take off your sunglasses (so you’re not squinting in your photos) and, of course, ways to help you relax and enjoy the ceremony - no matter how nervous you may feel!
SOPH IS HONESTLY AMAZING
"Sophia was our celebrant for our wedding in Wanaka and we cannot thank her enough! We feel so privileged to have had Soph as our celebrant! She knows just what you want without needing to ask and has the most perfect calming energy needed for your big day! We cannot recommend Soph enough." - Leah & Penetana
SHE REALLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT WE WANTED
"Sophia was brilliant. She helped us to design a perfect ceremony. She was really relaxed, but also super professional. In the end, we just felt like it was all really well-run, even though it was a loose and spontaneous affair. She brought order to the spontaneity, which meant it was exactly what we wanted, while still being a proper marriage ceremony. Her bright personality and easygoing attitude and attention to detail, just made the whole interaction special and fun. We also contacted her really last minute, and she was so accommodating. She even helped get other bits and pieces sorted out, i.e. recommending flower shops, hairdressers, ceremony locations, etc. We were so happy to have Sophia with us on our special day!" - Lena & Noel
WE ABSOLUTELY CANNOT RECOMMEND SOPH ENOUGH
"Sophia was the celebrant for our wedding in 2019. From the very beginning, she was so warm, friendly and welcoming. She made the whole process of creating the perfect ceremony and absolute breeze and lots of fun. We had no idea where to even begin and Sophia guided us through every step. Also as a Wanaka local, she was able to give us so many tips on other aspects of wedding planning that we hadn't even considered. We even had so many comments the day after our wedding about how amazing she was." - Rosanna & James
BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES
"We were looking for a unique and amazing elopement experience in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. From the onset, Soph provided fantastic client service and made sure the whole lead up to the big day was seamless and easy (just what we wanted). On our wedding day, we were well prepared for what was to come. The day turned out to be flawless in every aspect. Our ceremony was held on Coromandel Peak which in my thought was the perfect location to get married (unbelievable views). Soph read some beautiful words on top of Coromandel Peak which was really touching, creative and special. Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for anything more on the day. Soph organised everything from whoa to go and made our day so special, we will never forget how fun, easy, amazing & epic it was." - Emma & Soliman
